Watch Spotting A Cartier Panthère In The Original ‘Top Gun’

It’s still got that loving feeling.

I am a little ashamed to admit this, but I’m not a big fan of Top Gun. Yes, I know, it’s an American ’80s classic that pretty much everyone is obsessed with. But I’m just not that into it. What I am into, though, is the Cartier Panthère and reading the Daily Mail online during my lunch break (it’s my guilty pleasure – don’t @ me). Just today I was scanning the tabloid and came across a picture of Kelly McGillis in Top Gun and, lo and behold, there she was wearing a yellow gold Cartier Panthère in the 1986 film. I mean, just look for yourself:

I must have been too young to notice the watch when I first saw the movie, but I have to say, it further confirms that flight instructor Charlotte Blackwood was a lady boss. I hope the new female lead in the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick is as cool as she was.
